I found it interesting to learn what the latest findings about persistent pain are. I have learnt some new stretches and lots more about meditation, which is something I have never done before. I think some of the techniques will be helpful for managing pain but implementing them might be a challenge. Few things I am taking from this course are: 1. Not to be so hard on myself. 2. Slightly lower my expectations of what I can do, because I have persistent pain. 3. Think about what I can achieve in one go without causing myself unnecessary pain. 4. Find time for myself to be able to deal with the pain in a positive way.

I had very much underestimated the psycological influence on how we perceive pain, probably owing to the difficulties immediately post trauma, which can get such a grip on your mind. The course has made me separate the accident of a year ago from where I am now, which has made me much more in control of dealing with it. I use the word dealing rather than coping as it illustrates my new found very firm intention to conquer any significant hold pain has over me. The fractured spine has healed, and the course has given me huge confidence, and practical help in realising this fact, which I will now build on.

This course was so helpful to me. I have learnt to cope with my pain physically and mentally. I have had numbness and nerve pain free for a over month. Just recently I felt some numbness after rushing with busy Xmas shopping. However I am very calm and dealing with the pain based on what I learnt from this course. Thank you very much!

Some parts of the course we're really good. I particularly found meditation and relaxation parts helpful. I also changed my attitude that if something doesn't get done , as in I am in too much pain , it doesn't matter and I can do the chore when I feel not so bad. Many thanks .

This is an excellent course for coming to terms with pain. I did not realise before the course that stress, anxiety and depression can increase your pain levels. Learning how to relax has definitiely helped.

I found the course interesting, I'm sure with practice I can manage my pain better, I don't think it will subside, but I think I will feel more positive about life. I enjoyed the meditation as I felt good after it and happier.

Hi I have really struggled with my condition after being injured in a car accident as a passenger. I felt I was alone and no one understood what I was going through, as everyone around me was carrying on with their life. It was difficult as I had been a very independent and confident individual, so asking for help was just demeaning. Pathway helped me understand it was not demeaning at all as we all need help at some point in our lives. I used to really push myself to the brink of collapse as I am a work-a-holic. Now I pace myself thanks to this course. I have learnt to accept that I cannot do this and it is not really wise or productive to live like this. I used to reach for my pain killers at any onset of pain as I feared the pain of pain. Now I try the different techniques that pathway have shown me and it really does work. I have much less in the way of pain killers than before. Thank you Pathway

Excellent course this has made me stop and think more positively about the pain and has given me the energy to know I can improve my life style.

I found this a very useful tool to remind myself of how stress and pain can be reduced daily.

This course has enabled me to understand my pain better. To be more positive about living with it and therefore with a few adjustment to my life I feel that I can do rather than can't do!

Some of the course was very helpful, particularly the relaxation sessions.

As a patient and a registered nurse I already had a reasonable degree of insight into managing pain but as the former found it difficult to apply. Throughout the course I felt it offered excellent advice, support and strategies for managing pain. The use of videos of practitioners giving support and advice made the whole process feel more individualised rather than remote and therefore more encouragjng to follow. I am also really pleased I can still access the useful advice and support stratagies in my library because its essential to have ongoing support.

Now that I have completed this course, with more than a little scepticism, but I remained hopeful that this would help. I am delighted to say that my hopes were realised. Using the techniques, I feel that I am much more in control of my aches & pains and I now look upon my life in a different more positive way. The future is brighter now.

I was dubious as we have to do so much e-learning at work however the pace was good, at times slow for me but never too slow and the content was useful and supportive. Once you get started and pain becomes more manageable it can be difficult to complete the course but persevere as it is worth it. Sessions are never too long and some of the meditations are wonderful.

I would recommend the course to anyone who is experiencing pain. I have found it very helpful in introducing ways of thinking about pain and about challenging negative thinking about pain. One of the best things about the course has been the relaxation and meditation techniques which have really been useful. Another important aspect of the course was that I have felt supported and not so much alone with my pain. So thank you to everyone on the course.

Very good and very worthwhile doing it.

The course has been very carefully constructed and I feel it would help someone who is in constant pain to find a positive way forward. But, of course, it is up to you to do it for yourself.

The course was very intuitive, i was able to take the steps and build them into a working plan for myseelf and was able to go from confining myself to my bedroom day and night to getting down stairs and playing with my daughters.

The course has helped me to understand a bit more about the causes and the management of pain. It also confirms much of what I already knew or believed: that reinforcement is good. It reminds me particularly of the value of stretching oneself physically, so I have been a bit more conscientious about walking and cycling regularly and often. I recommend PtP therefore.

My name is Reece Harding, I am 23 and live in Somerset. I am glad I did this course and would recommend it to anyone with long term pain because even though I had seen many different specialists and been in many different help groups, I still learnt new techniques,i could do as little or as much as I liked and could go back over what I had done so even if I was in too much pain to move or read I could continue or go over old subjects because the majority of it is watching simple videos and it was kind of nice when I couldn't sleep to switch on my laptop and see a friendly face and take my mind off my problems slightly.

I found the course very helpful. It was engaging and easy to follow. The advice was solid and in particular for me the stretching, relaxation and re thinking steps really have changed my view. I still get pain, but now I do not panic and can see that I will feel better again.

When Mr Collins asked me if I would like to go on this course I've got to be honest I thought it would be a waist of time. But how wrong was I . When I started it I can truly say I was in a lot of pain and didn't know what to do with myself. I couldnt do exercises which I can now. and I could not walk long before the pain would kick up. I have just come back from a short break and I can say we walked every day. I had a couple of times were I was in pain but I did the things I learnt on this course and got through it. All I can say is I can't thank the team enough for what they have done. I'm not saying I'm totally pain free but I can manage it better.

Valerie Harris

Of course I was skeptical when I heard about an online "pain management" course but I tried to approach it with an open mind even though those around me didn't take it seriously. The techniques and ways of thinking have really helped me moving forward. I now feel I have things I can actively do whereas before I felt powerless. My pain made me feel very negative but now even though that still happens I try to think about the course and what I could try to help me. I couldn't recommend this course highly enough - what do you have to lose?!

Ruth Parkinson

This course has helped me more than you will ever know. I had never practised any relaxation before this, however, it will be something that I continue with and will share with my family, it's unbelievable how it makes you feel. The stretching excercise's are really helping me and I am starting to feel a difference. I actually feel sad that the course has finished and would like to thank you all for giving me confidence and helping me to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
